Instructions

Mexican Chicken Topping

  • Heat Oil in a pan. Add finely chopped Onion. Cook till they are soft and start to brown.
  • Add minced garlic. Fry till the raw smell is gone.
  • Add tomato puree. Mix everything well and cook for 30 seconds on medium heat.
  • Then add all the spices. Mix well and cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minutes. Make sure not to burn the spice mixture. Else add few drops of water.
  • Add minced chicken and salt. MIx everything well and cook till chicken is cooked through, somewhere around 3-4 minutes on medium heat.
  • Add 1/4 cup warm water and bring to a boil. When it starts to bubble, switch off the flame and keep aside the mixture.

For Cheese Sauce

  • In a pan add butter. When butter starts to melt, add flour. Mix well using a whisk.
  • Cook butter and flour mixture on low heat. Just before the mixture starts browning, add warm milk slowly, while whisking with the other hand.
  • Keep whisking the flour-milk mixture slowly and avoid any lumps.
  • Add shredded cheddar cheese. Switch off the flame. Mix well until all the cheese has been incorporated and the mixture looks smooth.
  • If the cheese sauce looks thick then add few tablespoons of warm milk to the mixture.
  • Cover the cheese sauce with a cling wrap to avoid forming a skin on top.

Assembeling

  • Fry Frozen french fries just before serving till crispy.
  • Arrange on a serving plate. Top with cheese sauce and minced chicken. Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves.

Notes

  • Make sure you fry the french fries just before serving and after adding the toppings serve immediately. Soggy fries don't taste good at all.
  • If you are preparing the cheese sauce a day ahead, cover with a cling wrap and refrigerate.
  • If you have prepared the chicken topping ahead of time and at the time of serving it looks dry, then add a couple of tablespoon of hot water to the mixture and reheat.
